Capital One’s 100,000 point signup bonus is now over. The 2011 offer was available on personal and small business cards, and was on top of the usual 10,000 point signup bonus. You just had to have miles in a frequent flyer account which would get matched. This year’s offer was 100,000 points maximum and required having spent $50,000 on a single credit card, and wasn’t available with the small business card. But the bank says they still handed out the billion points in 31 days.
There’s now an offer of 60,000 Ultimate Rewards points for signing up for a new Chase Ink Bold small business card and spending $5000 on it within three months, first year fee is waived. (HT: Mommy Points). This is now the biggest current, widely available credit card signup bonus.
Wandering Aramean notes that along with a name change from Accor A|Club to Le Club Accorhotels comes a requirement that in order to earn points you’ll have to book rooms through their website and not through third party booking sites like Expedia or Hotels.com.
With all the recent hub bub over elite security lines at airports, Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska has introduced legislation to ban them. He hasn’t suggested legislation, however, to ensure faster security lines. Thanks for nothin’, Ben! (HT: Frequently Flying)
It’s an offer that’s been around awhile, and it’s never given any points to me, but watching a video about the Priority Club Visa using code PGFTNHNAD3 generates 1000 points for many folks, according to Priority Club Insider and MilesQuest.
Mileage Saver says that Hertz is offering 250 points for signing up for their emails by April 30 and staying subscribed through the end of June.
Thanks to the miracles of Google Translate, this article suggests that Air Tahiti Nui would like to join oneworld. If this happens it could be the end of their cooperation with Delta, and the end of my claim that Skypesos are actually the best currency for travel between the US and French Polynesia (since Delta currently cooperates with Air Tahiti Nui and Air France, both of which fly Los Angeles – Papeete).
Have a great Wednesday!
